There is free car parking available for visitors for up to five hours. We also have parent and child parking, disabled parking bays as well as electric car charging pods and cycle racks for cyclists to park their bikes safely and securely. We also have accessible car parking bays located beside the existing disabled bay provision, and intended for use by people who need extra space to get in and out of their vehicle.  

If you are visiting us for the first time, the accessible bays can be found outside Accessorize, Wildwood, Fat Face, Moss Bros., Boots, M&S, Next , New Look and House of Fraser. They can now also be found in the new East Terrace car park outside three stores opening soon; Cotswold Outdoor, Hobbycraft and Decathlon.

If you do have a blue badge, then continue to display it when you use these accessible bays the same way that you would do with a standard disabled parking bay.  




Our car park has been awarded a safer parking award from Park Mark. To find out more about Park Mark, please click here.
